Interstellar reddening of delta Cephei.
Observations of 32 stars with the uvbyfi photometric system in the field of Cep are used to establish the reddening trend in the direction of the variable. The reddening gradient, in E(b - y), at the position of 8 Cep is about 0"?05 per 100 parsecs; the star's color excess is found to be E(b- y) = . Key words: cepheid - photometry - color excess
